Chicago civil litigation Attorney Dedrick L. Gordon provides effective representation in civil litigation in a range of disputes and industries with some examples including:


  • Insurance Litigation: Civil litigation in an insurance claims dispute context can involve a range of types of coverage, such as commercial, property and professional liability.  Litigation of insurance disputes often involves first-party coverage or third-party coverage issues in arbitration, complex litigation, and appeals.


  • Breach of Fiduciary Duties: Our law firm represents parties in litigation involving a special trust relationship, such as trustee-trustor, officers/directors-shareholders, financial planners-principals, mortgage brokers-borrowers, and other situations governed by fiduciary duties.  Attorney Gordon’s regulatory experience involving the financial sector can provide a valuable advantage in this type of litigation.


  • Construction and Real Estate Litigation: Virtually every significant commercial construction project becomes embroiled in at least some measure of litigation.  Because of the number of parties and contractual agreements involved in a large commercial or residential development, litigation is essentially guaranteed.  Our law firm has the expertise to handle complex litigation involving real estate development and building projects.

  • Education/School Law Disputes: Attorney Gordon is uniquely qualified to represent individuals in litigation or administrative matters related to education or school law. Attorney Gordon's educational background with elementary, secondary, and higher education institutions can provide unique and individualize representation.

  • Limited Family Law Matter. Our law firm has represented individuals is family law matters including dissolutions and contested custody matters. 


While our law firm works diligently to craft contracts that avoid unnecessary litigation, even the most tightly and skillfully drafted agreement that avoid ambiguity leading to conflicting interpretations can still be breached.  Attorney Gordon puts his client’s interest first when the potentially daunting and expensive step of litigation can be avoided by negotiating to resolve the dispute.  Alternatively, we might use arbitration, mediation, or other means of resolving a dispute that falls short of full-scale litigation.  Our law firm recognizes that clients have concerns about the potential cost of litigation, but we use our knowledge and experience to deliver effective representation while controlling costs by putting our client’s interests first.


When engaging in civil litigation for clients, we provide our clients with the time and attention needed to develop effective tactics calibrated to achieving our client’s goals.  There are generally three types of remedies we can pursue for a client when the other party fails to comply with the terms of its obligations under an agreement: (1) specific performance; (2) monetary damages; and (3) rescission (cancellation) of the agreement.  Specific performance involves the court ordering the other party to perform under the terms of the contract, such as consummating a real estate transaction.  Money damages can involve pursuing the money needed to compensate a non-breaching party, which might include lost future profits.  Finally, restitution can offer a client the ability to avoid prior and future obligations pursuant to an agreement. 


We represent businesses, government entities, and individuals in civil litigation throughout the Chicago area, including Cook County, DeKalb County, Kane County, Kendall County, Will County, and other areas in northern Illinois.  We are committed to delivering the highest quality legal services when seeking to mitigate the cost of litigation and pursue our clients’ interests.  Call us today at (312) 785-1265 to schedule an appointment in our conveniently located Chicago office or email us to set up your initial free consultation.
